The Egypt Exploration Society invites you to meet this year's Egyptian scholars at an evening showcasing their work.
This event provides an opportunity for the scholars to discuss their research with EES members and to demonstrate how beneficial the awards will be to the next generation of Egyptologists and archaeologists in Egypt both in their research and their work for the Ministry of Antiquities, safeguarding Egyptian sites and monuments.
This year's scholars are as follows:
Ahmed Ali Nakshara is Inspector of Antiquities at San el Hagar (Tanis). He is studying for an MA at Cairo University, on The Coptic letters from the Fourth to the Sixth centuries: forms and formulae. Whilst in the UK, he has been researching Tanis in Petrie's archives - at the EES, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, and the Griffith Institute.
Fatma Keshk is a team leader and project manager at the Center of Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage (CULTNAT). She is studying for a PhD at the Freie Universitat Berlin, on the topic of Open Spaces and Streets in Ancient Egyptian Settlement Sites: Planning and Utility, (5th to 3rd Millennium BC).
Hesham Hussein is Inspector of Archaeology in North Sinai. He completed his PhD at Suez Canal University, on the topic The Egyptian Eastern Border: a historical and archaeological study from the early Dynastic Period to the end of the Thirtieth Dynasty. Whilst in the UK, he has been researching Qantara (Sila -Tell Abu Seifa), an ancient frontier city.
Hoda Kamal, Inspector of Antiquities in the Saqqara area. Hoda is studying for an MA at Helwan University, on Force Goddesses in Egyptian Temples during the Ptolemaic and Roman Ages.
Mohamed Abuelyazid is site manager at Sohag. He is studying for a PhD at Ain Shams University on The Tomb of Psenosiris, Mayor of Athribis.

He is currently studying for an MA at Sohag University on An analytical study of the scenes and inscription of the shrine of king Nebhepetre Montuhotep II at Abydos and comparison of the shrine with the other shrines of the Middle Kingdom.
Four of the six scholars will give short, informal presentations and all will be on hand to discuss their work afterwards over drinks. The first-hand knowledge that they bring of the current situation in Egypt is invaluable and represents one of the main benefits to the Society of bringing them to London. We hope many of you will be able to join us. Places are limited so please ensure that you book your place below.
